Eck Robertson-Sally Gooden


Published


Recorded on June 30, 1922 or July 1, 1922 in New York City. Although it is indeed possible, if not likely, that country or hillbilly performers had been recorded earlier, these sessions with Texas fiddler Eck Robertson are the earliest documented recording sessions of a country performer. The recordings were not released until about a year later. "Sally Gooden" is another ubiquitous old-time fiddle tune that is rivalled only by "Soldier's Joy" in popularity.

I'd been listening to Heifetz all day and I still had to sit down when I heard this. Dear God. Download it. Make all your friends listen to it, and your family, and random people in the street.

This is a masterpiece of tasteful, imaginative variation by one of the greatest American traditional fiddlers. A startling combination of great musicianship and great technique. Any classical violinist would do well to listen deeply and try to reproduce this rendition. Fiddling isn't merely crude and untrained violin playing, and here's proof positive.
